What are your thoughts on the results of the Forbes Mayoral election?
Gordan Hurry: Overall the results are good due to the system, but I don’t necessarily agree with the system. In my opinion the first person past the post with votes from the people should be mayor.
Andrew Norton-Knight: I thought that both candidates were worthy of the job. Phyllis has been doing a good job but I can’t see why Graeme will not do equally as well. The community voted the counsellors and the majority of them had support for Graeme. If they all work together as a team they will achieve great things for the community.
John Cole: I was a little surprised by the results as I thought Phyllis may have retained her seat. Phyllis has done a great job but I expect the new mayor will continue to work to achieve the best results for the community.
